What shall I get dad for Christmas is a question I grew up asking. Apart from cigars and ‘good whiskey’ my dad could never think if anything he wanted for Christmas , birthdays or any time really. He wasn’t a materialistic man and he had simple needs. My husband is just the same and he never knows what to get his dad either.
What shall I get dad for Christmas? is a question asked year in year out round our way.
It makes me laugh when I look in magazines. Christmas ideas for her pages will go on and on and there is often just a single page dedicated to ‘Christmas treats for him.’
I need some good ideas.
Over at Treat Republic I have found some gorgeous and slightly quirky ideasfor dads for Christmas.
Here are my top 5….
1. Wooden cufflinks
I think these are classy and unusual
2. Folding Garden Trug
A perfect gift for any gardener (or bloke that likes to carry his beer around!)
3. Personalised couples set of two wooden keyrings
I adore these ( not so sure if he wouldn’t think they were a little too cute though!)
4. A carbon fibre pen
these are the kind of pens frequently used by the military and aerospace one for the man who has everything!
5. I rather love this slate keepsake and think the sentiment is beautiful
My dad would have loved it and i am rather thinking my kids would like to give this to their daddy. It cost £12.99 which for something perosnalised and classy looking is great value.
I think its all too easy to but a bottle of wine for dads but I do think they like a little gift from the heart too.
